I like I think I could have been a good dancer. I think if I’d been given an opportunity I could have.

As I watched my daughter in her studio showcase today I couldn’t help but wonder. What if?

What if my mom had put me in dance classes? What if I had been able to express myself through dance and music? I was pretty good at gymnastics so what if I could have been good at dance too?

My daughter clearly loves to dance. She would rather dance than do just about anything. She dances while she watches tv. She dances while she brushed her teeth. She dances when nobody is watching and when every body is watching. She is pretty good too.

What if I had had the chance to dance?

And then I remember that a week ago I fell walking down a two foot snow bank and landed on my face. The Best Thing in Life is wondering what if…….

    Have you thought about trying an adult class? My daughter’s Irish dance studio offers adult classes that are very popular. These ladies come in laughing and saying how this is their favorite day of the week.

      Yes her studio has adult classes but I think that’s ship has sailed. LOL.

    Well, I can sympathize with the slip and fall. I have become quite an ungraceful chicken and where micro spikes everywhere. Visiting here with Momand Dad in Montreal: dad and I were walking on some slickly iced over trail in his neighbourhood park and I was a nervous wreck watching him attack the icy hill. Ofcourse it was me that slipped that day, thank goodness. Hopefully my pre-brittle bones took it quite well. Even fell on the same wrist I broke last January..
    Anyhow, not a dancer, but that’s okay…
